If we could predict the future, there would be no Vegas, or at minimum a much poorer version. Weather would cause fewer surprises and the World Series, the Davis Cup, the Stanley Cup, the World Cup, the Daytona 500 and the Super Bowl --despite the not so predictable commercials-- would not be nearly as interesting to watch.
In today’s world, there are so many variables, nuisances and unknowns, it is impossible to see into the future and accurately predict a future outcome. If humans could accurately and reliably predict the future, it would be like gaining advanced access to tomorrow’s stock prices. Those with access would retire rich the day after tomorrow.
